May 2016 - Carnival Sunshine to Caribbean - Bahamas
We loved our cruise! So much fun and the kids loved the kiddie area, the kids club and all of the attention they got! Our room was perfect for 3 of us and our room attendant was amazing (especially important because our daughter got seasick). We did the "cheers" package and it was great. The downfall is that is seems the bartenders don't want to serve you when they see that sticker on your room key. Many times the bartenders would just walk past you and serve someone else. So weird..we were sure to tip everyone so it wasn't like they wouldn't get an additional tip. Some of the bartenders were downright rude. The bartender in the Havana Bar refused to make a coffee drink for us because he "hates that machine". The food was OK but nothing I'd brag about. Such long lines and it seems that when you really want food it's not available. Should have more options after 10 pm. The kids club was awesome! Our kids loved going in every day and the staff was amazing! The adult only section is nice but if you are not there early to reserve a chair/area then you are screwed. Lots of people just put towels down and then leave for hours. Sucks when you put your kid in Kids Club and then have no place to go and enjoy the quiet time. Should be a limit with the unattended towels.
